-- america >> reporter: that the question for many americans is simple -- how can this be legal? the supreme court answered. speech is powerful, chief justice john roberts wrote in the court's opinion. it can stir people to action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow and as it did here, inflict great pain. we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker. the court held that because the protests deal with public issues -- gays in the military, war in iraq -- they are protected under the constitution. we do not stifle public debate, roberts wrote. >> this is the kind of case that is going to have an influence for generations. it is the supreme court standing up and giving constitutional protection to extremely unpopular speech. it's really what the first amendment is all about. >> reporter: this ruling was a sharp disappointment to the family of lance corporal math matthew snyder who was killed in iraq and whose funeral was picketed. >> we found out today that we can no longer bury our dead in this country with dignity. >> reporter: but the westboro protesters do now have a license

decline. it was common for all of america's older cities. one of the pains of this book is that the american dream doesn't have to lie behind a white picket fence in the suburb. and that cities have been as intrinsic to american history and to our experience as a nation as anyplace else. the very birth of american has its roots in boston in the 1770s between john hancock badly wanted the political change that could be created by a mob. and sam adams who knew how to conjure a mob. and their connections as created by the city of boston changed america, created, helped create this great country of ours. in the 19 century the great problem was making the wealth of the american interior accessible to the market to the east and europe. cities make that happen. they grew up as the great transportation network that enables the rich dark soil of iowa to become productive. if you go back to 1816 it costs us much to move goods 32 miles overland as it did to ship them across the atlantic. it was enormously difficult to access all the wealth that was in the american hinterland. citie
